Not much to end the week with, people, just trailers and posters for two new drama movies coming straight from the United Kingdom. The first one a mix of comedy and drama THE PARTY both directed and written by Sally Potter in her first new film in almost five years. Starring Patricia Clarkson, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Timothy Spall, Kristin Scott Thomas THE PARTY is actually a comedy wrapped around a tragedy. It starts as a celebration and ends with blood on the floor. The movie should hit British cinemas October 13th!
The first trailer and poster have also been released for British drama THAT GOOD NIGHT which already did its round around movie festivals this summer but does not yet have a cinematic release date. Starring John Hurt (in his last movie before he died this January), Max Brown, Charles Dance, it follows Ralph (John Hurt), a once famous screenwriter, who is in his seventies and terminally ill. He has two final missions: to be reconciled to his son, Michael (Max Brown), and, secretly, to ensure he is not a burden to his wife, Anna (Sofia Helin), as he goes "into that good night".
